Maker Faire is a two day DIY event attended by an estimate 50,000 to 95,000 people at the San Mateo Event Center in San Mateo. Teachers were asked to select students they thought would benefit by attending of the most innovative, creative and thought provoking event that annually comes to the peninsula area.
They explored exhibits that included robots, electric cars, fire breathing dragons and sculptures. The students also played with static and virtual worlds, and learned to solder by making LED Makers Faire pins.
